RE: Murphy, Grayson Refuse to Keep Floridians Safe


Voting against the Zika Vector Control Act this week, Patrick Murphy and Alan Grayson chose to side with the Democratic Establishment over the safety and security of Floridians. With over 500 cases of Zika confirmed in the United States, and over 100 of those cases here in Florida, the two congressmen seemingly forgot the people they represent.

The Zika Vector Control Act eliminates the barriers that currently exist to fight Zika, to speed up the process of controlling and combating the virus. As Zika continues to spread, it is imperative to act now to stop the virus before it is too late. Considering over 200,000 babies are born each year in Florida, Zika is nothing to play politics with.

Not only is the decision by Murphy and Grayson irresponsible, it is dangerous. By kicking the can down the road, those battling Zika and those in at-risk states like Florida must sit each day and worry more about their own safety. Murphy and Grayson represent the worst of D.C.; they talk the talk, but when the time came to act they repeatedly refuse to do the right thing for Floridians.
